The Frank Lloyd Wright-Designed ‘Pappas House’ Hits Public Market

May 15, 2019

Frank Lloyd Wright is widely known as the father of American architecture, bringing his unique sense of midwestern (and western) style, futuristic design, and visionary pedigree to the masses. Throughout the 20th century, the famed builder constructed a handful of renowned dwellings throughout the United States — leaving a rich legacy of his work in both Arizona and Missouri. Now, Wright’s St. Louis-based design, the Pappas House, is heading to the public market for the first time.

The Pappas House is a Usonian-style home on the outskirts of one of Wright’s favorite cities, St. Louis, Missouri. Designed in 1955 (and built in 1960) as a dramatic statement illustrating the state of middle-class architecture in the central United States, the Pappas House was one of the first to integrate the architect’s automatics — homes built with cost-effective concrete bricks that could be assembled in a variety of ways. The two-bath, four-bedroom estate boasts high ceilings, expansive living areas dressed in the original contemporary furniture, and an outdoor terrace fit for social gatherings in front of the fire pit. The construction of the home is relatively simplistic, utilizing a multitude of terracotta-tinted concrete blocks and vertically-oriented windows, showering the dwelling’s various rooms in warm light. The home is slated for sale via Realtor.com for $1,200,000.
